NWS: Potential for more flooding Wednesday

by Anna Oakes

The National Weather Service in Blacksburg, Va., has issued a flash flood watch for Watauga County and surrounding areas from 2:59 p.m. Wednesday until 2 a.m. Thursday.
"Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue this afternoon into tonight as a cold front approaches from the west," the NWS said. "With much of the watch area saturated, additional heavy rainfall will likely result in flash flooding."

Flooding is also possible near streams and creeks with elevated levels, the alert said.
